Four Sparrow Marsh in Brooklyn was spared from Ratnerization in 2011. A new hearing was held in 2012, but then the project was kept very quiet until now.
When is a nature preserve not a nature preserve? When Parks owns it and Michael Bloomberg is mayor. Then it's just another development site. And one that the EDC is keeping a secret. They removed all mention of it from their website even though they are the lead agency overseeing the project. Which probably means that what NYC Audubon shilled for has been drastically altered.
I hope I'm wrong.
